    1-seaweeds - Not normally, no. Seaweed is the collective noun.

    2-To make a play on words - Yes.

    3-Nature is very strong. (Is it better to say "THE Nature"? ) - No article is required.

    4-I'm trying to lose the kilos I have put on. Yes.

    5-I had no control over the wheels. Yes (or "over the car")

    Cheers
